Question New F4 1000 owner Looking for advice

Ok so I just bought a 2005 F4 1000 1+1 with 37 miles on it from apparently someone who never actually road the thing, at the end of May, had the 600 mile service done last week.



And Iím beginning noticed that after the motor heats up the getting jerky as far as HP/ torque is concerned.



Also has anyone had anyone had complaints of the engine running rough for a little bit when you start out? And yes Iíve let the engine heat up to the recommended 122 degrees F before I start going anywhere. Iíve heard that it is do to the oil pump not really pumping up to the valves until the oil pressure really gets way up.



Any ideas?

Steve, do you mean the throttle feels like an on/off switch. Like you're either accelerating or decelerating?

SteveO unrelated, but as a newbie if you havent pulled the 2nd throttle spring to "ease" the pressure needed to turn the throttle I highly recommend it, made all the difference in the world for my right hand/wrist going numb.

welcome to the site steveo, and congrats on the bike. pleas elaborate on the problem a little bit more so we know how to answer your ???s explain how it does it when, at what rpm and how u can duplicate the problem, as obmot recomended, disabling the 2nd throttle spring helps alot on the on and off issue, but if your problem is something els, explain it in detail, and im sure we can try to help.
